This is our third trip to Fitzroy island and we will certainly return. The island is just beautiful and very relaxing. No cars, only the one hotel and bar and otherwise just lots of beach and tropical rainforest and bushland. While the resort is not the most luxurious we thought it very good value for money The pool area is...

I have never experienced anything worse when it comes to food! Foxy's is a joke. Mostly very young staff in the resort, friendly but don't care much about anything. Not sure if there is any management..? Doesn't look like it - if there is I don't know what they're doing... I guess they pay rubbish money and that's the kind...

Fitzroy Island Resort is 45 minutes by fast ferry from Cairns. The apartment style accommodation is well appointed and has great views of sunset over the beach. There are excellent walking trails to the island summit and the lighthouse - both have fantastic views. Take some water with you. The full circuit will take 1.5-2.5 h.

My sister and i had our first stay on Fitzroy Island and the over all experience was great, the rooms were stunning the staff for the most part were extremely friendly and helpful and for such a small island the facilitys were amazing the only reason it was not a 5 star for me were a few tiny encounters; My...

Everything about the Fitzroy Island Resort was incredible! The rooms are lush, the pool is fabulous, the staff are super friendly and the actual island is magnificent. My 8-year-old son was in paradise, and especially loved the pool and the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre tour (he thought our guide, Jen was pretty special too!). We went out one morning for a...

Beautiful, relaxing island, but whoever oversees the mangement of the resort, restaurant, bars etc needs a kick up the pants, it could be run so much better than it currently is. The place is tired and run down, poor service and cleaning staff need to be shown how to clean properly. This place could be great if managed properly.

Room was average, even though it stated "view" and seating area, the view was looking directly onto the public walk way so the curtains had to be closed most of the time to allow for some privacy. The seating area was a chair attached to a tiny desk and a one person recliner. The room was seen to every day...

I came to Fitzroy Island at the beginning of May this year. Although the island is absolutely beautiful the Resort is most definitely not. The room was ok, apart from cockroaches we found in the room (one of which was in the bed). I know that this cannot be avoided though. The resort was pretty run down and neglected. We...

We spent 3 nights and 4 days on Fitzroy island. Very relaxing with great activities for my two 10 year old grandchildren to do, paddleboarding being a highlight for them, with reasonable hiring fees from raging thunder. We loved hanging out at foxy's playing pool.The food was ok at foxy's but the food highlight for us was our dinner experience...

We had booked for 6 nights on Fitzroy island and left after 3. The island was absolutely beautiful but we couldn't spend any more time there due to the bad food choices. The buffet breakfast was basic and ok but the food at foxey's was horrible. The chicken wrap had a strange fish taste with slimy salad from being toasted...
